Abstract

The sermon is defined as a "genre of oratorical prose: a didactic work that contains ethical demands and prompts the listener to an emotional perception of those demands". In the literary room encyclopedia has not been given much attention until now, and the interest in it can even be named as limited. It occurs only within general rhetoric, history, theology, and philosophy. The area functional variety of language includes the sphere of religion, where the sermon also belongs. Here, in this paper, we try to systematize the observations related to the genre classification of the sermon.

Concerning the sermon, as one of the most significant genres in the area of the sacred, special attention deserves consideration and analysis of its specific communicative properties. The questions in this sphere refer to its realization in oral form, the referral to a collective addressee, the asymmetry between the communicants (absolute dominance of the preacher over the recipients), strong presence of intertextuality and linguistic features, among which the interaction of archaic and modern language units on the lexical, phonetic, morphological and syntactic level. The textological peculiarities of the sermon remain the focus of one of the following scientific - research activities, which on the other hand enables a functional analysis of the medieval literary texts (the praise epistle of St. Clement of Ohrid, for example).
